Just last Monday, Meredith Jessup posted this video in the blog section about a crazy new trend called 'planking.'
Mere days later the Planking page on Facebook had over 200,000 members, with photos and videos pouring in from all around the world.
And then came the bad news. The first recorded DWP. Someone actually died while planking. CNN covered the news (as they also added dozens of planking videos to their iReport pages online);
'Australian man fell to his death last week while attempting to take part in the online fad.'
The sad story of the planking death did not stop the fad from spanning the globe, and may even be generating more interest in it. Here in America, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedyway, even the drivers have been seen planking - Champion Scott Dixon and others 'plank' in this report.
